The effects of frosts on rainforest/open forest ecotones in the highlands of North Queensland


Proceedings of the Royal Society of Queensland 100: 49-54
The effects of frosts on rainforest/open forest ecotones in the highlands of North Queensland
Unusually severe frosts were recorded on the Atherton Tablelands, Queensland, during July 1984. Relative frost susceptibilities of typical rain forest, open forest and ecotonal species were assessed in the Wongabel State Forest. Leaf scorch was observed on both open forest and rain forest species, particularly in frost hollows and cold air drainage channels. Damage to rain forest trees was most apparent on exposed edges such as roadsides.
